TSSG Protection Though Planning

The Settlement Services Group (TSSG) helps settlement stakeholders re-think planning options including healthcare and government benefit coordination to better utilize structured settlements and create improved settlement solutions for all parties.

TSSG is 'independent': TSSG works with any and all settlement stakeholders including defendants; insurers; attorneys; judges; mediators; guardians; trustees; allocators; lien administrators; QSF administrators; claims administrators; MSA administrators; life care planners; and product providers.

TSSG is 'claimant-centric': TSSG encourages and promotes claimant-centric settlement solutions characterized by:

  • Claimant profiling to determine resources, needs, goals, risk tolerance, and level of financial awareness.
  • Protection of private and confidential information.
  • Support for, and expertise utilizing:
    • IRC 468B Qualified Settlement Funds (QSFs); and
    • State structured settlement protection statutes.
  • 'Best interest' standards for all product recommendations.
  • Full disclosure and informed consent for:
    • Compensation;
    • Conflicts of Interest;
    • Relevant laws and stakeholder policies.
  • Access to broad spectrum product and service providers - no forced products through captive sister companies.
  • Settlement team approach emphasizing performance metrics and best practices.
  • Continuing services - before, during and after settlement.

Attorney Matthew Garretson has announced the sale of his structured settlement agency, The Settlement Services Group, (“TSSG”) to Forge Consulting, a leading plaintiff-exclusive, national settlement consulting company. Forge names Patrick Hindert and Timothy Morbach as new TSSG Directors.
